Watch our instant analysis of
the latest breaking news.

Given the revulsion & horror over gun violence right now feels as much cumulative, gun rights hysteria is steeped in racism, & because the chalk figures ARE black, believe @NewYorker missed the opportunity (imperative?) to merge Buffalo into “Uvalde” title. (✒️ #EricDrooker)

Strange to see member of the right caught in act of denial when standing procedure (the way Cruz faults Dems for Uvalde) is to indignantly project the blame. Either guy’s a weak link or perhaps, just perhaps, reality this time is that overwhelming.

A sickening redundancy in the most recent news art from #ShoShibuya. Culture of violence/racism. (“Buffalo, NY. RACISM”; “Uvalde, Texas. WHY DO WE KEEP LETTING THIS HAPPEN?“)
